Camping Each evening we establish camp on the riverbank. If you have never camped before, rest assured that the guides are professional at making your camping experience comfortable, relaxing and fun.

Hiking Canyonlands Canyonlands National Park and Cataract Canyon offer amazing hikes very day. The clean air amplifies a vibrant blue sky, creating a perfect environment for hiking and unparalleled photographic opportunities. Depending on the length of your trip, time is set aside for hiking to geological and historical sites including Ancient Pueblo ruins and petroglyphs. In spring there are waterfalls in some of the side canyons. You can participate or relax by the river edge. Some hikes can be strenuous with large elevation gains to canyon overlooks. Every hike is optional and the guides will organize the trip to the group’s desires.
Traveling by Oarboat The oarboats trips are longer in length and allow for more hiking as well as a more overall pure wilderness trip. The oarboat is the traditional raft on the Colorado River. This type of craft places you 'up close and personal' with the river and its natural power. It's a pure wilderness river trip combining all the comforts needed to enjoy the outdoors. Only the quiet dipping of the oars in the water breaks the quiet of the smooth water sections. The oar boats are smaller than the motorized boats for the shorter Cataract Canyon trips. This means a wilder ride in the Rapids, especially in May and June.
